Elin Lanto - Funeral

"No matter if you end up in Heaven or in Hell, I'll be dancing on your funeral"

I'm sure all of you hardcore Swedish pop fans have already heard this track, but it's still worth hyping outside of the pop music world. Elin Lanto has gone for a slightly rougher (aka: better) sound with her new album, and although this is a surging dance tune through and through, the rough edge can definitely be seen in the dark, vengeful lyrics. The bubblegum nature of the backing track masks an extremely dark tone, and it's this contrast that really sets the song apart. It's the one track on the album that seems to be everyone's favorite. It's just one of those songs. It doesn't hurt that Elin's raspy voice fits the attitude perfectly. And once the track hits the chorus, everything explodes. She's really giving fellow Swede-poppers September a run for their money.

Parts of Elin's album + parts of Linda's album = perfect album.

I love your blog!
And i do love Funeral! It's one of the best songs this year!!

I have a blog called "Lost Singles". It's about good singles that didn't do well on charts and songs that deserve to be singles, but we're not..

Keep on working!
